Great food. The service was A+. We have been twice in the past 2 trips to Tahoe and it has been equally great each time. We will be back on our next return visit to Tahoe.

About the restaurant
***ROOF TOP DECK IS OPEN FOR WALK INS ONLY, WITH A LIMITED SNACK MENU AND DRINKS. There is no table service upstairs, and there are no regular dining reservations upstairs. Our downstairs outdoor patio is first come, first serve (no reservations).

We are an award winning brewery and give our food the same reverence, offering new life to old world European comfort dishes and American classics. We craft new and old world style ale(s) and lagers using the finest natural ingredients, and we brew our beers using the mineral rich Sierra mountain spring water from our own artesian lake, 285 feet below the building.

The Sea Bass special was excellent. The regular menu Short Ribs were tender. Mashed potatoes shined on both dishes. Servers were excellent. Outdoor seating overlooking golf course provided great atmosphere.

We at SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE are serious about our food, service and hand crafted liquor offerings. We’ve taken all the great things about our original restaurant, Sierra St Kitchen, to Skyline Blvd and infused that into a concept and vibe unique to SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE! If you’re in the Lakeridge, Caughlin Ranch and surrounding neighborhoods, come in and see what SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE is all about.

The food is very good. Service, atmosphere, and value for the money are just okay. Went for Mother's Day dinner, they didn't have a record of the reservation but it was not very crowded, so not a problem getting a table. Service was slow and just so-so. One of our orders was wrong and when we brought it to the attention of the waitress she said she would correct the bill, but didn't.

About the restaurant
If you were hoping for a long-winded origin story about the prism through which we define our cuisine, you won't find it here. We just want to feed you cheffed-up versions of comfortable favorites that pay attention to details.

We draw our inspiration from all over the place, so rather than worrying about boxing ourselves in, we just have fun making delicious, craveable food with big flavors.

Look forward to seeing you!

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.
